Well finally got a lid for the 30. I ended up getting it directly from Weber. Hopefully I'll be able to start on it in the next week or so. Got a ton of different things going on and one thing I don't have is a lot of time. I am also currently working on Part 3 of the video series. It will cover how I did the Weber lid. Just figured I will put up an update.
I will say that I am loving the 55. It has been great. Most recent smoke was 2 briskets I did over Memorial Day weekend. We were camping so I didn't take a lot of pics but here is what I took.
First briskets, I got much to learn, but they were gone and they were delicious. One of them dried out a bit, but the other one was awesome. I don't know how many conversations I had about this "big grey drum thing" that was sitting on my campsite. I met so many people that weekend and it was due to the UDS. I think I might have to build a couple for some people I don't even know...lol.
Anyways, keep an eye out for 30G updates and the videos. I must apologize for the ads on the videos, but trying to bring in some extra income.
